Is the PS3 the new Raccoon Eyeglass Holder?
« on: June 02, 2006, 03:56:20 am »
Ok, Ok, I've read A LOT of Sony bashing (And I agree with a lot of it)

But I thought I would play devils advocate, and ask: "Are we wrong?"



Steve touched on this a little in his last pod cast. Everyone thought the Raccoon Eyeglass Holder would fail, but it did great. Do you think there is any chance that PS3 might turn out to be the next Raccoon Eyeglass Holder underdog story?

Or do you think we were all right the 1st time, and Sony will get knocked of their throne?



Step back from your camps and think about it.

I thought we could do with another "PS3 is the new ____" thread.

obviously since he's sympathizing with sony he must be a stupid sony fanboy and nintendo is the greatest corporation ever it's just that sony and mikkkro$haft are ripping off of them and i really care about what console you have if you don't have a wii then I'll curbstomp you you stupid sony/mikkkro$haft fanboy even though I'm a scrawny albino nerd that only weighs around 95 pounds and nintendo doesn't subject independent developers to extremely unfair terms that was just a lie made up by sony/mikkkro$haft and the truth is that nintendo wii is the best console ever anyone who says otherwise is an evil gaijin

I shouldn't have brought it up in the first place, now the thread is tainted with cheap plastic, and a terrible speaker the size of a quater.

Wanna know what I think? I think the PS3 controller would fit PERFECTLY onto the racoon glasses holder. It'd balecne well on it's nose.
Unfortunatly, that's all I really have optimistic to say about it.


For one thing, what the hll IS that racoon thing? I don't think i've ever seen one before...

But one way or another, the playstation controllers will aaaaaallways reak of nintendo for me - the button layout is just the same as the snes controller, the handles will allways remind me of my old see-thru controller I had, the anolouge controll bits will remind me of the N64's controll stick, and NOW with the tilt feature, well damn, where've I seen that before?

Now don't get me wrong, i'm not a ninty fan boy, I'm a propper gamer, I just find that I prefer actuall game play rather than grafics, and nintendo has allways put gameplay first.
PS and XB fan-bois will usually just go ''oooooooooooooooooooooh, lookit, 'tis SHINY AND BRIGHT!'' but grafics aint everything.

I'm not a fanboy to any one company, but c'mon, you'd have to be blind to say you can't tell the difference:





And yes, that is gameplay.

It's definatly going a bit far saying there's no difference between the Wii and PS3 graphically, because theyre undoubedly will be, eventually.  But so far Sony have shown almost nothing except mocked up footage, or games running on stupidly powerful systems, and not the actual PS3.  I am shocked that anybody is still believing the PS3 hype, just take a look at Tekken 6 for example.

This is what it looked like 12 months ago.


This is what it looked like at e3.

Never belive anything you hear about games/consoles from E3.
Seriously. Even spore.

Everyone at E3 is only out to promote what they're selling.
Heck, even will did it at the GDC, he was using a 'version' of the game that was an obviouse mock up.

Best place to get info from are the independant games mags like GAMEStm and game-master. Sure, they may have a *bit* of bias but not as much as the official mags and sites.
